Cabinets on Top of Laminate (Toe Kick Saw Right)

Moving the cabinets isn’t a viable option... should be an easy peasy  job with a toe kick saw right? 
 

:read:

 

Who’s done this before ? 
 

How big a pain in the ass is it ?

I bought a harbor freight to kick saw when reflooring my kitchen. It worked great for 10 minutes and then died. I tried fixing it with  with cussing and a sledge hammer but was unsuccessful. I bought a Milwaukee cordless oscillating tool thingy later that day. It takes longer but let's you cut under the cabinets a little bit.

   Its not like I would every use a toe kick saw ever again anyway.

I’ve never used one of those saws. I would  make a few practice passes on scrap.

 

like a router, it will have a preferred direction of travel.

I have lots of tool thingys. Only two Milwaukee's though.  One cuts this way, and the other cuts this way.

Yes I was a little less than clear maybe... sorry

 

 

No sweat man. It just struck me funny :)  I would use an oscillating tool. I have a Dremel, and a Bosch. On both of them I can set the blade to cut up to 90 degrees from the tool, so cutting under toe kicks is usually not a problem. Ya may have to "thread" the tool under the kick first. Be prepared for smoke, and have a bunch of blades. Once you master one of these things, you'll wonder why ya didn't buy one before.
